Lansdowne Friends Meeting

First Day School at Lansdowne Friends Meeting

Announcement:

Lansdowne Friends Meeting suspends in-person gatherings for worship, First Day School, committee meetings and other events such as Meeting for Learning due to the need for physical distancing to slow the transmission of the Corona virus. If you are interested in a virtual Meeting for Worship, please contact the Meeting at [email protected].

Quakers are an active, involved faith-based community living in the modern world. We are a diverse group; the Religious Society of Friends consists of several distinct branches. We continue our traditional testimonies of non-violence, social equality, integrity, and simplicity, which we interpret and express in a variety of ways. Today, many Friends include stewardship of our planet as one of our testimonies.

Quote of the week

President Lyndon Johnson's high spirits were marked as he circulated among the many guests whom he had invited to witness an event he confidently felt to be historic, the signing of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.... The bill that lay on the polished mahogany desk was born in violence in Selma, Alabama, where a stubborn sheriff... had stumbled against the future.

Martin Luther King, Jr
